Upstream is June 5, and wow, our schedule is shaping up brilliantly. Over the next week we’ll give you a sneak preview into some of the talks and the speakers giving them via posts like these. RSVP now!

The financial services industry has been a leader in open source security—out of necessity, as they are charged with protecting people’s money. So when we decided on this year’s theme for Upstream—unusual ideas for the usual problems—a panel featuring experts in financial services was a must. Fewer sectors are more prepared to talk about both new ideas for improve the security and resilience of open source.

Join us next Wednesday (June 5) at 4 p.m. ET when Tidelift CEO and co-founder Donald Fischer sits down with folks who know open source and financial services best: Gabriele Columbro, executive director of FINOS; John Mark Walker, open source program office director at Fannie Mae; and Tosha Ellison, strategic advisor at FINOS.

This esteemed panel will discuss how they have pivoted strategy in the wake of high profile open source supply chain attacks like Log4Shell or, more recently, the xz utils backdoor. They will discuss new approaches that financial services organizations are trying now, and what things they have tried before that aren’t working quite so well. And they’ll share how they think organizations outside of financial services can apply some of the same strategies and tactics to improve open source security and resilience.
